I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

unfortunately this is usually caused by a failed amplifier which will require it be replaced.


you should check fuses if you have not, they are on the underside of the passenger dashboard and also in the trunk behind the right side trim panel per this info:

if you need a good shop to save $ vs the dealer check out or for options


Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
